This is Christmas - Howard W. Hunter

In case any of you are looking for fabulous decor for the Christmas season - and an opportunity to help a young man serve on his mission...

I saw this on a blog recently. A woman sells 16X20 prints of these on her etsy shop to pay for her son's mission. I'm inspired by this to think of something beautiful I can make and sell to earn money to pay for my kids' missions (missions coming soon). For now, I'll promote this lady's etsy shop and help you with your shopping. :) Just click on the photo to get to her etsy shop!

By the way, the words in the photo above are the words of Howard W. Hunter. They read...

This Christmas, 

Mend a quarrel. 

Seek out a forgotten friend. 

Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust. 
Write a letter. 
Give a soft answer. 
Encourage youth. 
Manifest your loyalty in word and deed. 
Keep a promise. 
Forgo a grudge. 
Forgive an enemy. 
Try to understand. 
Examine your demands on others. 
Think first of someone else. 
Be kind. 
Be gentle. 
Laugh a little more. 
Express your gratitude. 
Welcome a stranger. 
Gladden the heart of a child.
Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth. 
Speak your love and then speak it again.

Christmas is a celebration, and there is no celebration that compares with the realization of its true meaning—with the sudden stirring of the heart that has extended itself unselfishly in the things that matter most.

There is a ripple effect in all that we do; what you do touches me, what I do touches you...
